Flying Lotus: Aural Exploration

 

Flying Lotus is one of the freshest new producers to hit the electronic music scene in years. Although his catalogue does extend far beyond the boundaries of electronic music. He has produced everything from hip hop to house, jazz to drum n bass—all laced with a distinct set of sounds that you wont hear anywhere else. His signature genre is downtempo/chill out, which features a unique pallet of crunchy bass beats with some serious psychedelic undertones. He is the grand nephew of late jazz great Alice Coltrane, who had a strong influence on his early career. He even features her favorite instrument, the harp, on a number of trax. His latest album features a number of collaborations with top artists, including Snoop Dog and Kendrick Lamar. Check it out at the linx below:
